The BlackBerry Tour (9630) — not to be confused with the Onyx which celebs are toting around — made a very silent launch on two major US carriers today. Unlike the Pre, which is exclusive to Sprint, the BlackBerry Tour has been announced on both Verizon and Sprint networks. The Tour will be coming to Sprint by the end of the Summer and will cost $199.99 on a two-year contract (after a $50 rebate and a $100 mail-in rebate . . . what's with the rebates?!). Verizon details haven't been released just yet. Wondering what's so hot about this smartphone? Well it comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera with a flash and zoom (wish I could say the same for the iPhone), video recording, and an expandable memory slot that will support 32GB cards.
